Regents Canal

Regents park, London, NW8 7, London, United Kingdom

The Regents canal threads its way through North West London, eventually running alongside Regents Park, onto Kings Cross and enters the River Thames in East London at Limehouse, via the Limehouse Basin.The canal is a venue that is often ignored by anglers which is a shame as good sport can be had with good shoals of Bream and silver fish throughout the canal.There are numerous venues to fish on the Regent Canal, some of the more popular parts are Little Venice and behind Kings Cross station where the canal opens out where the old docks used to be. Tactics:Standard canal tactics will work here. Light tackle is needed as the weather cools and the water becomes very clear. Around Camden there is a lot of debris on the bottom of the canal and getting snagged can be a pain. Float fishing or light ledger will all work and making use of any features such as moored boats will all help.Baits:Maggots, Worms, Bread, Sweetcorn, Hemp and bloodworm all work. Small spinners will catch Perch and shallow diving plugs/lures can help catch some of the many Pike in here.There is easy access to all of the London sections of the Canal although in some places it is not accessible to wheel chair users as the only way down is via steps. Parking is usually an issue thought around Little Venice it is free at weekends, but always check each roads restrictions.
